Inside Out: Leaving Prison Behind
The prison system can be a revolving door for people trapped in a cycle of incarceration. This documentary follows three inmates’ in Juneau, Alaska, from the moment they walk out the prison gates.
They all face obstacles – getting a job, finding housing and fighting addiction — and share their first-hand experiences and insights. While reentry is a struggle for everyone, why are some able to leave prison behind forever?
What role do family, friends, and the community have? What makes the difference?
